New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
So-Cal rock trio Kyng today released their new studio album,Breathe In The Water via Razor & Tie. Produced by Machine (Lamb of God, Clutch) the album was recorded at The Machine Shop Recording Studio in Austin, TX and is the follow up to 2014's Burn the Serum.
Breathe In The Water is front loaded with the type of impassioned vocals that erupt from the depths of the gut, unforgettable blues-soaked riffs, and pulverizing rhythmic clap. Driven by frontman/guitarist Eddie Veliz, the three-piece band also features drummer Pepe Clarke Magana and bassist Tony Castaneda. They take a no-nonsense approach to music: free of pretense, studio trickery and gimmicks. The result is a collection of songs that is real and raw, addressing themes of anger, loss and desperation.Original cover artwork by Conor Nolan reflects topics running throughout the album. Brian Blickle (Baroness) and Zach Blair (Rise Against) are guest collaborators.
"We were finally able to create a record that had zero stigmas to appease the industry. Every song on this record came from the depth of what Kyng truly is as a band. This album is far beyond anything that we have done in the past. Some of my best work resides in Breathe In The Water," says Veliz.
SiriusXM's Liquid Metal came on as an early supporter of Breathe In The Water, premiering the lead track "Pristine Warning" to rave reviews. The show's host, Jose Mangin, exclaims, "My favorite 3 piece is back, tighter and more dominant than ever before!"
Early press reviews are in:
"Right on the fence between Crobot and Red Fang, and it works beautifully." -Metal Injection
"Punishing…thick and warm, but spacious enough to give the lighter moments a clever balance" - Loudwire
"Imagine the ever-changing yet doomy rhythm section of The Sword, meets the catchy choruses of Monster Truck, with the incredibly catchy vocal lines and harmonies of Alter Bridge. That said, Kyng does not come off as a copy of any of those bands, and Breathe in the Water is a great example of their originality. - Alive and Loud
"Watching Eddie Veliz play a mean guitar while having a throat of gold, along with Pepe Clarke who is an absolute demigod on drums, as well as Tony Castaneda play bass and pull off killer backup vocals is like watching an Ocean's Eleven film…perfect teamwork" - Pittsburgh Music
